McLean admitted that Gosling, who was his childhood neighbour, believed that the Backstreet Boys would not be successful. When the group began to top the charts, Gosling reached out to McLean, but didn't hear back.

McLean said: "Ryan, I am so sorry that I didn't call you back... If we ever want a sixth Backstreet Boy member, I'm gonna call you. You can sing.
